Looking back on my own experience. Everything that I went through that was supposed to help me with my Invisible Disabilities. Was either about short term gratification or making life for those around me easier. When it should have been about my long term development so I could best navigate a world I’m not built for.

When it comes to individual sports. I think combat sports like boxing or MMA. Since when you train you to work with a partner. However, at the end of the day, the best sport is the one you or your kid will willingly participate in.
Everyone Needs To Fell Loved! M Is For Mental Health Wellness & Growth Season 1 Episode 1 Feeling loved is a human need. Not feeling loved leads to depressed feelings which leads to a lot of other issues. I fell that as adults we make other adults fell loved by saying and doing nice things. A simple “I love you” to another adult goes a long way. However, when it comes to children. Saying and doing nice things is something you should still do. It’s not how you make them feel loved. So How do you make children feel loved? By being supportive and encouraging. By allowing them to learn, grow and develop into the best version of themselves than can be.
